The Rockets will play Indianola Gentry at the Starkville High School jamboree, starting at 5 p.m. Choctaw Central will play in the Richland jamboree. The Warriors will play two quarters against Leake County, starting at 5:30 p.m. They will scrimmage Richland starting at 7 p.m.

Union and Leake Academy do not have a Spring game scheduled.

Philadelphia under new head coach Bobby Hall does not have a Spring game scheduled. Hall, who was hired last month to guide the Tornadoes, said he hopes to line up a game for next week.

“We are still getting to know one another,” Hall said. “These kids love to play football. Their attitudes have been great. We have talent and good size. I am more excited about this team than I was when I first took the job.”
